"There is no waste in creative process." -Amy Walsh
The little things, big things, stolen moments, mess, serendipity, inspiration, education, devotion, mistakes, struggle, dust, dream---all of it.
When you stay in the process, with the practice, in whatever imaginable and unimaginable ways, all the little drops add up.
Creative process takes time.
I get impatient, as my ideas are overflowing, but I'm a mom of two young children. Time is limited. (My daughter is asleep in the floor as I write this!)
I appreciate zooming out to see that all the little bits add up.
It's like that with learning.
Feldenkrais called this "successive approximations", coming at the same thing from different angles, in different moments. And then at a certain point, the learning comes together.
"Learning is turning darkness, which is the absence of light, into light."
"Learning is creation. It is making something out of nothing. Learning grows until it dawns on you." -Moshe Feldenkrais
